Palestine is one of many historical names for the region between the Mediterranean Sea and the banks of the Jordan River, plus various adjoining lands to the east and south. Many different definitions of the region have been used in the past three millennia. Today, the Palestinian National Authority is an interim administrative organization that nominally governs parts of the West Bank and all of the Gaza Strip, which are part of the Palestinian Territories. It is a volatile region of the world with tensions often at boiling point between Palestine and Israel. Most Palestinians are Arab Muslims.
